Dry and itchy scalp

Hi there, i am struggling with dry and itchy scalp. i suppose it has to be my shampoo. no matter what shampoo i use it does not help (i use shampoo with botanical ingredients but it still has parabens etc in it) there something natural i can use to stop the itching.. like an oil or vitamin or remedy. i do take vitamins for hair, nails and skin and i also take omega 3 and 6. i am scared that it can help with permanent hair loss later on if the itching continues. i am female and 28. thanks.

itching scalp sometimes are related to stress. i would suggest this should be addressed as well. The EPA / DHA strength should be high. in the region of 300 / 250. FoodState has just brought out a Omega 3 supplement, which also contains vitamin B12 and folic acid (vitamin B to feed the nervous system.)

Use zinc as well.

add 3 drops of pure rosemary essential oil to your sjampoo to help. Dr Hauska sjampoo is a very natural product to use. if your hair is not to long then you can use their Neem oil as well. nourishes the skin.

Hi there, the hair, nail and skin vitamins have Vitamin B1, 2, 6 and 12 in it as well as Zinc Gluconate and other stuff. The omega 3 and 6 s EPA is 500mg each. Is this high enough? i will try the Rosemary essential oil. Hope it helps. Thanks.
